    Hahahaaha! I know. I'll probably just wear my freshers t shirt to avoid completely ruining my clothes :P[/QUOTE]

    I remember a foam party in 10/11 where you could find several pieces of clothing and even a pair of abandoned Converse and Uggs just lying around outside. Putting them off inside, I understand. But outside, after the party has finished and you are going home? :confused:

    How have you found out your accommodation?
    I got an email yesterday with my offer

    It depends how much you care. All you need the building for is a functioning kitchen, bathroom and a place to sleep and work, if that's all you need then Cryfield is fine!
    I guess. It's just I've heard a lot of criticism of it and not much praise haha people tend to say its not nice or just sort of "it'll do"

    I know its been discussed before but I wondered as a non-drinker who hates clubbing and going out with people who do get drunk, how much will I be separate from everyone else? It seems like most people make friends on Freshers nights out but I won't want to do any of that so I don't know whether I'll be able to make friends as easily :/

    I don't drink either there will be quite a few who don't do the whole clubbing scene thing, and I don't think we'll miss out on a lot, from what i've heard people don't exactly recall the gazillion people they talked to during freshers once its actually over. And people tend to make friends with those on their courses/halls/socs anyway from what I've found out, so it should be ok!

    Same here, well, almost...

    I do drink ^^ Hate (the idea of) clubbing though, and looking through the events lists left feeling "I don't fit into any of these", except possibly The Dirty Duck things, and the film soc quiz (I think I saw it somewhere...)
    Left thinking a bit like I'd rather stay in my room until it's all over, and *then* go out and make friends gradually.
    I'm hoping that there'll be more people like this/a decent number per corridor/flat so you can do your own thing with them.

    Aww don't think that! You've got like so much time to make friends when you think about the time you will spend getting to know new people in societies/sports clubs, and I'm guessing you'd become close to your hallmates too. What's a couple of weeks going to do eh
